Lawrence & Shannon
Thank you for giving us the opportunity to introduce ourselves and try to give you a small glimpse of who we are. This is likely the hardest decision you have ever faced, and it says so much about your courage and love that you are considering adoption for your precious baby.
After trying to get pregnant for a few years after we were married, we decided to pursue adoption rather than fertility treatments to grow our family.
We were blessed to bring our son Ryan home in 2014 through an open adoption, and are excited to grow our family again!
Lawrence works full-time as a plant manager for a transportation manufacturing company. He loves Jesus, playing baseball and hockey, burgers and beer in the summer, and secretly enjoys watching the occasional cooking show. He is hardworking, caring, thoughtful, and fun-loving, especially when it comes to playing with our son.
Shannon is a stay-at-home mom, and loves the flexibility that offers. Before being a mom, she was a medical administrator. She loves Jesus, that first cup of coffee in the morning, getting her hands dirty in the garden, playing piano, and getting lost in a book.
Ryan is almost 5, and can’t wait to start school! His first love is books, with trains and being outside coming in as close seconds. He is witty, smart, and always ready for an adventure.
It’s hard to sum up our life in a few paragraphs, but that’s us in a nutshell. Put simply, we love God, we love each other, and we love living life together with our family and friends.
We hope you’ll reach out to us to learn more. We want to be able to have an ongoing relationship with you, with email or text updates and several face-to-face visits each year, but will respect you and work with you to find a level of openness and contact that you are comfortable with.
If you decide to make an adoption plan, we promise to cherish and love your child with all our hearts and souls, and provide a safe, happy home with all of the blessings and opportunities possible.
Love and prayers,
Lawrence, Shannon & Ryan
